TOWN OF ANDOVER 

MASSACHUSETTS 



Town Offices 

Andover, MA 01810 

(508) 470-3800 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Andover: 

The theme of the Town Manager's Recommended Budget for FY-1994 
was "A Community Working Towards the 21st Century". Looking back 
on 1993, it is evident that this theme was woven through the events 
of the year. In support of this theme, the Town department heads 
drafted their own mission statements which were based on the vision 
statement crafted by the Board of Selectmen in late 1992. 

Also supporting the theme of working towards the 21st century 
were the efforts of the School Building Committee. During the 
first half of 1993, the School Building Committee worked on plans 
for a new elementary school proposed to be located at Penguin Park 
off Burnham Road. That plan did not go forward, and mid-year the 
committee reorganized and received new educational specifications 
from the School Committee. The new plans called for a 400-seat 
addition to the Andover High School, a 141-seat addition to the 
South Elementary School and a small addition to the Sanborn School. 
By the end of the year, the planning for the additions and 
renovations at the three schools were well underway. The plans, if 
accepted by the voters at the 1994 Annual Town Meeting, would 
provide the high school and the elementary grades with sufficient 
space to greet the 21st century. 

In 1992, the Towns of Andover, Arlington and Danvers banded 
together in a forward-looking program to institute training on 
total quality management. During the year, a Local Steering 
Committee was created made up of Town and School employees. They 
received basic training in total quality and were instrumental in 
the starting of two demonstration teams - one entitled "TIMES" 
(Take Ideas and Make Effective Solutions) and a Licensing Demo 
Team. The mission of the TIMES Demo Team was to develop an 
employee suggestion program that would allow the Town to take 
advantage of the expertise of our employees and turn their ideas 
into action. The mission of the Licensing Demo Team was to come up 
with process improvements on the way the Town Offices license food 
and alcohol serving facilities. Both of the demo teams received 
extensive training in the tools of total quality management and by 
year's end they were hard at work showing good results. 



To demonstrate a commitment to the future adults of our 
community, the Town started the "Our Town" Youth Employment Service 
which employed twenty-nine teenagers and young adults who assisted 
in painting fire hydrants, painting municipal and school buildings, 
parks and grounds clean-up activities, as well as clerical work in 
the Town Offices. 

The highlight of any municipal year centers around the Town 
Meetings. In 1993, the Town had two Town Meetings - the Annual 
Town Meeting in April and a Special Town Meeting in November. 

At the Annual Town Meeting, a budget of $60M was approved. 
The Conservation Commission obtained approval for a $1.0M bond for 
the acquisition of open space land. The Town established a 350th 
Anniversary Committee. The Town Meeting also approved an Early 
Retirement Incentive Program for municipal and certain school 
employees. By the end of June, twenty employees had retired - ten 
were municipal employees and ten were School Department 
administrative and cafeteria employees. And last but not least, 
the League of Women Voters sponsored an article to eliminate the 
quorum for Town Meeting. This article was passed overwhelmingly. 

At the Special Town Meeting in November, the voters 
appropriated an additional $819,599 for both the Town and School 
budgets - $129,400 for the Town and $690,129 for the School. This 
appropriation was the result of state aid allocations to Andover 
which was larger than anticipated at the time of the April Town 
Meeting. Another noteworthy action of that meeting was the 
appropriation of $500,000 for architectural and engineering 
services for the School Building Committee to proceed with the 
plans for the building project. These additional monies will 
afford the committee the resources to bring a comprehensive school 
addition and renovation plan to the voters at the 1994 Annual Town 
Meeting. 

Other highlights of the year 1993: 

The Town filed a petition at the Department of Public 
Utilities requesting that train whistles be eliminated in the 
Town of Andover. A number of hearings were held during the 
year and as of December, the hearings were not completed. 

Sharon L. Souza was appointed Coordinator of Senior Services 
in March. It did not take her very long to make her mark. In 
April, Ms. Souza was informed by the State Lottery Commission 
that the weekly Bingo games were in violation of State law 
mandating that Senior Citizen Bingo pots may not exceed $5.00 
per game. Ms. Souza went right to work and contacted our 
legislative delegation which filed an amendment to that law. 
The law was passed by the Legislature, signed by the Governor 
and now the seniors can participate in games with winnings up 
to $100.00 per game! 

The Board voted to make improvements to the traffic design at 
Shawsheen Square. These changes have been submitted to the 



Massachusetts Highway Department and we anticipate approval so 
that modifications can be completed in the spring. 

Two key bridges were repaired during the year. The Central 
Street bridge was closed for structural reasons in September, 
1992 and it was opened in June, 1993. The Stevens Street 
bridge was closed in July, 1993 and its repair work was 
completed in November. 

The Town made history in 1993 by being the first community in 
the Commonwealth to competitively bid an advanced refunding of 
municipal bonds. The Town will save $391,000 over ten years. 

In December, the Board of Selectmen voted to classify the tax 
rate. The Board shifted the tax levy 135% from residential to 
commercial, industrial and personal property. The residential 
real estate rate went from $14.10 to $15.14 and the 
commercial, industrial and personal property real estate tax 
rate went from $18.36 to $22.78. 

The year 1993 was one of accomplishments for the Town. We 
witnessed a number of programs that exemplified "A Community 
Working Towards the 21st Century H . The Selectmen have listened to 
our residents and have provided them with the quality public 
services they expect. This could not have been accomplished 
without the leadership and support of William T. Downs, Chairman of 
the Board of Selectmen, the members of the Board, and volunteers 
who serve on all of the Town's boards, committees and commissions. 
The high quality of public services that we deliver are performed 
by our hard-working department heads and employees. It is through 
the professionalism and dedication of each and every individual 
employee that Andover has become a community striving to be the 
best now and in the 21st century. Thank you for your continued 
support during 1993 and I look forward to the challenges of 1994. 



Respectfully submitted,

TOWN OF ANDOVER 

MASSACHUSETTS 



Dear Citizens of Andover: 

The year 1993 has been a very challenging year for the Board of 
Selectmen and overall I feel that the Board has met most of these 
challenges in a very professional and expedient manner. 

As a result of the March 1993 election, the Board of Selectmen 
welcomed the return of William T. Downs to the Board for his third 
three-year term. As usual, the Board reorganized and elected Selectman 
William T. Downs as Chairman, Selectman Larry L. Larson, Vice President, 
and James T. Barenboim, Secretary. 

This is a very diversified and knowledgeable Board and through this 
diversity and knowledge the Board has been able to make responsible and 
fair decisions. Although we disagree at times, it has been a very 
productive year for the Board. 

In the year 1996, on the sixth day of May, the Town will celebrate 
the 350th anniversary of it's incorporation. A committee has already 
been formed and are well on their way with plans for a celebration fit 
for this special occasion. 

Due to the foresight and planning of the many boards and committees 
in conjunction with the new Capital Improvement Plan, I feel we are 
heading in the right direction toward the 21st Century. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Board, the Town 
Manager, and all other town boards and committees for their sincere 
cooperation during the year and look forward to the same cooperation 
during the coming year. 

The Board commends all of the Town employees who are responsible 
for the smooth operation of the Town of Andover on a day to day basis 
and to let them know that the Board of Selectmen appreciate their 
contribution and their unselfish efforts. 

Last and certainly not least, the citizens of the Town of Andover 
should be commended for their active participation and interest in the 
affairs of the Town. 

The Annual Report of the Town of Andover for 1993 is an extremely 
important document that gives an overview of the events of the year and 
should be of great interest to all taxpayers. 

Respectfully submitted for the 
Board of Selectmen, 

William T. Downs 
Chairman

ANNUAL REPORT 

Andover School Department 

Serving a student population of approximately 5,120 students, 
the Andover Public Schools consists of four elementary schools, two 
middle schools, an academic high school, and K-2, Integrated Primary 
School. The Andover School Department employs 484 staff members, 
and it is overseen by five School Committee members who meet twice 
each month. The appropriation of $23,412,810 for the Andover School 
Department last November marked the conclusion of a year's debate 
over the purposes, goals, and hopes of the Education Reform Act of 
1994. The sweeping changes introduced by this bill— changes in school 
financing, curriculum and instruction, school governance, and student 
discipline— are already being felt in every school system throughout 
the Commonwealth. If anything, 1993 was as much a year to 
anticipate and respond to the pending legislation, as it was a year to 
continue with the broad initiatives started last spring on school 
construction, building renovations, curriculum renewal, and long-range 
planning for changes in our secondary schools. 1993 began with a 
contract settlement with the Andover Education Association, after 
several difficult months of negotiations; it was capped by the passage, 
in the November Special Town Meeting, of articles calling for the 
elimination of student bus fees, and for funds to secure architectural 
drawings for a 400 student addition to Andover High School. 

School Committee 



The Andover School Committee welcomed a new member last 
March with the election of Mr. Richard R. Muller. A life-long resident 
of the Town of Andover, Mr. Muller is a 1970 graduate of Andover 
High School, and the University of New Hampshire where he excelled 
both as a student and an athlete. Mr. Muller was actively involved in 



the passage of $2.4 million bond article for building repairs in October, 
1992. He is currently Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at 
Omnirel in Leominster, Massachusetts. 

With the arrival of Mr. Muller, the School Committee elected 
Susan Dalton as Chairperson, and Bill Huston as Secretary and moved to 
define its goals for the 1993-1994 school year. To these ends, the 
Committee stated its intentions to: 

(1) Develop a long-range financial plan for FY X 94-FY N 00, to 
coordinate with the Town Manager's Annual Capital 
Improvement Plan. 

(2) Collaborate with other Boards within the Town to address 
concerns with building maintenance, school construction, and 
financing. 

(3) Review the effectiveness of Andover's secondary curriculum 
and its delivery. 

(4) Redefine the direction and assumptions for instruction and 
staff training for technology. 

(5) Develop a comprehensive school construction and renovation 
plan to relieve overcrowding at Andover High School and 
Andover's elementary schools. 

With these goals defining its agenda for the 1993-1994 school 
year, the Committee: 

• Voted to revise 7/1/92 educational specifications sent to the 
School Building Committee to include the use of Shawsheen as 
part of the School Department's space inventory. 

• Developed new educational specifications for South and 
Sanborn Elementary School, and Andover High School. 

• Requested the Town Manager to form a new School Building 
Committee to develop solutions to overcrowding in our 
elementary schools and at Andover High School. 

• Presented a Preventive Maintenance Program to the Board of 



Selectmen and Finance Committee for implementation in 
October, 1993.

of Schools and Business Manager.

• Voted to reject the provisions of School Choice, as provided in 
the Education Reform Act. 

• Held public forums to discuss the educational and policy 
implications of teaching of AIDS in the curriculum and of 
condom availability. 

• Held public forums to discuss the implications of leveling and 
ability grouping in our secondary schools; and of the School 
Department's position relative to the full inclusion of special 
needs students. 

Notable Accomplishments 

As a result of this work, the Committee selected Mr. Richard Neal 
and Ms. Gail Zeman as the School Department's new Assistant 
Superintendent and Business Manager. In addition, the Committee 
helped secure passage of additional planning monies for architectural 
designs for Andover High School at a November Special Town Meeting; 
successfully worked with the Board of Selectmen and Finance Committee 
to resolve the financial impacts of State Aid to schools brought about by 
Education Reform; and approved final plans for the presentation of a 
comprehensive building plan for April Town Meeting. 



Central Administration 

To support the goals of the School Committee, the Superintendent 
completed work on last year's Action Plan, and submitted his Action 
Plan for 1993-1994 in October. Several initiatives were completed by 
the Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent over the course of 
the summer and fall. These included: 

• Implementation of the newly formed Staff Development 
Commission. 

• Implementation of the Curriculum Renewal Plan; orientation 
training for Curriculum Council members; and the revisions and 
introduction of several new courses to Andover High School's 
course catalogue.

members of the Anti-Defamation League. 

• Successful participation and preparation for the Special Town 
Meeting in November. 

Notable Accomplishments 

This year has been marked by persistent work to supervise the 
general maintenance and preventive maintenance of our school 
buildings; a successful "Needs Conference" with the Department of 
Education, verifying its financial support for classroom additions and 
renovations to Andover High School, South and Sanborn Elementary 
Schools; early development of the School Department's budget for 
FY'95; and successful implementation of the many new regulations 
surrounding Education Reform, including a no smoking policy, ground 
rules for student expulsion, school improvement plans, and personnel 
hiring. 

Business Department 

In January, 1993, long-time Business Manager, Frank Paul, retired. 
School Accountant, David Reilly served as interim business manager 
before moving to the Town side to become Treasurer/Collector in 
September. Gail M. Zeman assumed business management responsibilities 
for the district, and Peter Korpusik joined the department as Accountant. 
In November, Accounts Payable Clerk, Barbara Campagna, retired and 
Joanne Kempton moved to the Food Service Department, as Kathy Gilmore 
and Phyllis Case joined the staff. The following achievements resulted 
from the department's efforts this year: 

• A new payroll system was installed in July, 1993, in order to 
provide a more accurate level of payroll and reporting services. 
Weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual reports, as well as all 
paychecks and W2's, are generated on this system. The 
business department is continuing to develop networking 
capabilities between the new payroll software and all other 
software elements, to fully utilize the district's electronic data 
processing options. 



• In addition to assisting the finance department with payroll, 
the Computer Center provides data processing services for the 
entire district for personnel, accounts payable, financial 
reporting, student registration, attendance, class scheduling, 
mark reporting, transcripts, and child tracking. Laser printers 
are currently being installed at all elementary schools in order 
to eliminate the time lag between data entry and receipt of 
reports. 

• Spring bidding of the regular transportation contracts, which 
run on a three-year cycle, resulted in significantly decreased 
transportation costs to the Town for the twenty-four buses 
used each day. Following substantial discussion, the School 
Committee responded to a Fall Town Meeting advisory vote by 
eliminating transportation fees as a revenue source, beginning 
in the 1994-1995 school year. 

• The Copy Center continued to serve the needs of all schools, 
central Office, Town Hall, PTO's and others with the production 
of over four million copies. 

• The Finance, Accounting, and Purchasing group is engaged in 
budgeting, purchasing, paying for, reporting and auditing the 
expenditures for all educational and support services funded 
by the $23.4 million FY' 94 appropriated budget, and 43 grant 
and revolving accounts. 

• The Food Service Department served about 240,000 lunches 
during the school year in all eight schools, as well as about 
14,600 meals year-round at the Senior Center, through Meals- 
on-Wheels and at the Professional Handicap Center in Andover. 
The Department also operates a seven-week summer lunch 
program for a variety of children's camps and supper activities. 
Through a combination of low meal charges, federal and State 
subsidies, and occasional catering to school and Town groups, 
this department operates without direct cost to the Town of 
Andover. 

Notable Accomplishments 

The Business Office assisted building principals in overseeing 
building operations and custodial services and worked with the 



10 



Department of Municipal maintenance on a large repair and upgrade 
project at West Middle School, among many maintenance and repair 
efforts. Ms. Zeman has, finally, successfully integrated several new 
citizen into the Ad Hoc Committee for Finance. Together with the 
Superintendent, they are evaluating operating budget allocations and 
working on a long-range financial plan for the schools. 

Personnel Department 

With the passage of the Early Retirement Bill, the number of 
town and school retirements reached an all-time annual high. As a 
result, the Personnel staff spent much of the summer and fall involved 
in the recruitment of professional personnel for some of the Town's 
key positions. These included: 

•A new Director of the Senior Center 
•A Library Director for Andover's Memorial Hall Library 
•A new Treasurer 

•A new Inspector of Buildings, and a Director of Municipal 
Maintenance. 

The department also coordinated searches for an Assistant 
Superintendent of Schools, a School Business Manager, and a School 
Accountant as noted above. Numerous other staff have been hired to 
replace some of our recent retirees including three new police officers 
and three new firefighters. On the recruitment front, we've been busy! 

Notable Accomplishments 

Personnel continues to be involved in staff development and 
training programs. Last spring, five supervisors participated in an 
extensive supervisor training program sponsored by the Department of 
Personnel Administration. This year, a variety of customer service 
training programs were offered to general government, library, and 
school business staff; sexual harassment training and affirmative action 
training was offered to department heads and other supervisors; and 
the Benefits Assistant coordinated annual benefit seminars for all staff 
and retirees. The Personnel Department has also supported regional 
and local efforts in sponsoring training programs in Total Quality 
Management. 

Under the direction of our new occupational health provider, the 



11 



Hepatitis B program has now been offered to all town and school staff 
at risk for this virus. The town has also recently contracted with a new 
employee assistance provider, Family Service of Greater Lawrence. 
1994 will be full of many wellness programs. 

Other Achievements 

Schools and Programs

FINANCE DEPARTMENT 

The mission of the Finance Department is to build and 
reinforce confidence in Town financial management by managing and 
planning all financial functions in an efficient, cost effective 
and responsive manner. Our mission is accomplished through a 
collaboration of team efforts which provide departments and the 
public with the necessary information to record and assure 
accuracy, accountability and justification. 

The Town Manager's Recommended Fiscal Year 1994 Budget was 
released on January 15, 1993. During the months of January, 
February and March, approximately twenty meetings were held with 
the Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee and department heads to 
review the budget and warrant article requests and prepare 
recommendations for the Annual Town Meeting. 

In early April, the Finance Committee Report was mailed to 
10,827 households. The Annual Town Meeting was held on April 12, 
1993 and the Fiscal Year 1994 operating budget (Article 3) was 
adopted in the amount of $57,128,907. This budget was an increase 
of 4.6% from the fiscal year 1993 operating budget (Article 4) of 
$54,638,594. 

As has been the case in previous years, delays by the state in 
voting the state budget and the revenue allocations to cities and 
towns required Andover to hold a Special Town Meeting in the fall. 

On October 25, 1993 the Finance Committee mailed its report to 
over 10,800 households. The Special Town Meeting was held on 
November 8, 1993 and appropriated an additional $690,129 to the 
School Department and $129,430 to Town Departments. In addition, 
funds were appropriated to the Library for the acquisition of books 
and for state funds received for the operation of the regional 
library system. 

In June, the Town issued $4,100,000 in General Obligation 
Bonds for the following purposes: 

$ 965,000 Water mains and pumping station 

100,000 Sidewalks 

220,000 School building plans 

415,000 MRI Court judgement 

2,400,000 School renovation projects 

Moody's Investor Service rated these bonds as AA and the interest 
cost of 4.10% was the lowest rate since 1966. 

In November, the Town performed the first ever municipal 
competitive advance refunding in Massachusetts to take advantage of 
low interest rates. The Town refunded $8 million in previously 
issued debt (primarily water and sewer projects undertaken in the 
mid-80' s) at an interest rate of 4.5%. This refunding will save 



17 



the Town $391,000 over the life of the debt (from FY 9 5 through 
FY2010) . 

The Andover Cable Advisory Committee met monthly to discuss 
matters involving TCI Cablevision of Andover and its services to 
Andover customers. The new Cable Act of 1992 passed by Congress in 
early 1993 has re-established rate regulation and other cable 
matters. In Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Community Antenna 
Television Commission (MCATC) is legally responsible for rate 
regulation. The Andover CAC monitored the new Act and worked with 
TCI and MCATC on its implementation. This process will continue 
into 1994. 

The Town Manager released the FY1995 - FY1999 Capital 
Improvement Program in October. Approximately $51 million in Town 
and School projects were recommended. Meetings were held with the 
Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee and School Committee. In 
December the Board of Selectmen adopted a revised CIP subject to 
future discussion and information. 

The following chart shows the total Town budget for FY1991 - 
FY1994. This budget includes appropriations voted by the Annual 
and Special Town Meetings and other expenditures not requiring 
appropriation. The final FY1994 Budget was $60,638,805. 

ASSESSING 

During 1993, the Assessing Division undertook a number of very 
important projects to meet state requirements regarding assessments 
while also enhancing public services. A complete re-inspection and 
revaluation of all property within the Town was completed. All 
property owners were notified by mail and the Assessors office held 
personal meetings with any taxpayer to discuss their valuation. 

As part of this process, the Board of Assessors installed a 
new computer property assessment system for the maintenance and 
updating of all property records. Tow computer terminals have been 
placed on the counter for use by the public to research information 
regarding assessments, property and sales data. These easy-to-use 
terminals have been enthusiastically accepted by residents, real 
estate agents, attorneys, etc. as a very helpful tool.

CENTRAL PURCHASING 

During 1993, there were approximately 1,719 orders processed 
for the Town and 2,530 orders processed for the School Department. 
Approximately 45 bid openings were held as well as 5 Requests for 
Proposals. The continued use of State bids and contracts has 
proved to be beneficial to the taxpayers of Andover. 

Under Massachusetts General Laws, two or more political 
subdivisions may jointly purchase a single item or a wide range of 
goods and services such as: paper products for copy machines, 
police vehicles, road salt, chemicals, fuel oils, vehicle fuels and 
supplies. 

Some examples of major bids put out by Central Purchasing in 
1993 are as follows: 

Finance Committee report 

Sidewalks 

Sewers 

Water mains 

School supplies and equipment 

School Lunch (7 items) 

Highway Division equipment 

Miscellaneous road materials and concrete pipes 

Painting of road markings 

Surface water drainage 

Office supplies, equipment and furniture 

The Office of Central Purchasing is responsible for contract 
compliance regarding Andover' s Affirmative Action Plan, and 
insurance coordination and risk management for all Town and School 
departments with the exception of health and personal insurance 
which was handled by the Personnel Department. 



19 



Areas of importance in the early 90' s where Central Purchasing 
and insurance coordination were able to save dollars for the Town 
are as follows: 

Collaborative bid on Gasoline & Diesel Fuel involving 12 towns 
Collaborative bid on Fuel Oil (#2 & #4) involving 7-10 towns 
Collaborative bid on copy machine paper involving 7 towns 
Collaborative bid on Student Insurance involving 5 towns

DATA PROCESSING 

During 1993, the Data Processing Division continued to 
maintain, customize and improve the existing application software 
on the Town's centralized computer system. 

In order to increase the efficiency and comprehensiveness of 
applications in the Finance and Budget Department, several of the 
financial-oriented applications were enhanced. The municipal lien 
certificate application was updated to automatically alert the lien 
clerk if deferred taxes are owed on the specified property. The 
calculation and input of water, sewer and street betterments have 
been automated. The printing of all personal property tax bills 
and all real estate demand bills were printed in-house on the 
Town/School laser printer which eliminated outside contract fees. 

There were two projects during the year which involved 
substantial staff time in order to assist the Town Clerk and other 
departments: address consistencies in major databases (Town Clerk, 
Assessors, Police - E-911) and redistricting (Town Clerk and 
Community Development & Planning) . The Data Processing staff, 
along with staff from the Town Clerk's office, considered 
purchasing a new software package for the recording of census and 
voter data. At that time, the decision was made to continue with 
the current in-house software with some modifications. Some of 
these improvements have been completed by the Data Processing staff 
and have been very well received by the Town Clerk's staff. 

VETERANS SERVICES 

Nineteen families were assisted in 1993 with funds to help pay 
for food, fuel, medical and personal needs. The Town is reimbursed 
for 75% of these expenditures by the State according to Chapter 115 
of the Massachusetts General Laws. 

Nine veterans were admitted to Veterans Administration 
Hospitals. Forty-six veterans died in 1993: thirty-five from World 
War II, six from the Korean War and five from the Vietnam War.

TOWN COUNSEL 

During 1993, Town Counsel made numerous appearances before 
State Courts and Administrative Boards. Formal legal opinions were 
researched and rendered to Town officials. Court challenges to 
decisions by the Town's boards and commissions were defended by 
Town Counsel. Administrative proceedings and lawsuits were 
commenced to enforce compliance with state statutes and the Town's 
by-laws. Town Counsel had conferences with the Town Manager and 
other Town officials on almost a daily basis. Town Counsel 
reviewed all Articles of the Warrant and attended all Town 
Meetings. During the period covered by this report, contracts were 
drawn and reviewed and numerous deeds, easements, releases and 
agreements were drafted and recorded. 



TOWN CLERK 

The mission of the Town Clerk's office is to uphold the 
integrity of the Town's democratic process, to maintain and 
preserve public records, and to act in the best interest of the 
community and the State by providing innovative, efficient, quality 
service. 

During 1993, to comply with the new State law, the Town 
Clerk's office redistricted the Town's eight precincts. The shift 
in precinct population was reflected on each resident's Town census 
and the new precinct lines will be used in the 1994 Town Election. 

The Annual Town Meeting in April voted to eliminate the quorum 
requirement for Town Meetings. The "no quorum" rule came into 
effect at the Special Town Meeting on November 8, 1993 and 603 
registered voted opened the meeting at 7:05 P.M. 

Along with the Annual Town Meeting and the Special Town 
Meeting, the Town Election was held on Monday, March 22nd. 2,647 
registered voters, 15% of all registered voters, cast their ballots 
in the election. 

The Board of Registrars registered 679 new voters in 1993 
compared to 3,017 in 1992 - a decrease of 77.5%. These figures are 
reflective of an off-election year. The Board also certified 3,862 
initiative petition signatures during the Fall. The year ended 
with 18,024 registered voted - a decrease of 5.5% over 1992. 
Registered voters in the Town's 8 precincts are as follows: 

1 - 2129 3 - 2146 5 - 2380 7 - 2142 

2 - 2279 4 - 2261 6 - 2243 8 - 2444

and abstracts of 1,100 magazines and six national 
newspapers, and a listing of 7 million businesses and 36 
million residential telephone numbers. 

Continued increase in storyhours, summer reading 
programs, and circulation of children's materials. 

Established quarterly Friends of Memorial Hall Library 
newsletter featuring articles written by staff and 
department heads to keep community informed of library 
materials and services. 

After serving the Town of Andover as an Administrator at the 
Memorial Hall Library for twenty-one years, Mrs. Nancy Jacobson 
retired from the Library in June. Following an extensive search, 
Mr. James Sutton was appointed Director. Mr. Sutton has worked in 
public libraries for twenty years, the last fourteen years as 
Director of the Morse Institute (Public) Library in Natick, 
Massachusetts . 

The Library Trustees and Staff look forward to serving the 
Andover community in 1994. Among the goals to be achieved include 
the development of a long-range plan, implementation of access to 
the Internet, and an increasing use of the tools of Total Quality 
Management to improve services.

POLICE DEPARTMENT 

The mission of the Andover Police Department is to protect our 
future and the quality of life in Andover. We are empowered to 
protect life and property, but, with the changing times of 
increasing social problems, our agency has become more service- 
oriented to the community. To continue our mission, we will 
maintain an open door policy to the community, working with their 
suggestions, needs and thoughts so that we may preserve the way of 
life that we all enjoy in Andover. 

The year 1993 saw an increase in violent crime and domestic 
situations. This is a nationwide trend and not just unique in the 
Town of Andover. 

The department initiated the following new programs aimed at 
safety education: 

Child-Restraint Program and educational class instead of 
a fine for the violation. 

Car-Seat Loaner Program enabling residents to borrow a 
child car seat for up to two weeks. 

"Adopt-a-Sign" Program dealing with pedestrian safety at 
cross walks. The signs are placed and removed daily by 
churches, schools and local merchants. 

A $10,000 grant from The Governor's Highway Safety Bureau 
allowed the department to work on areas of operating 
under the influence, speed enforcement and pedestrian 
safety. 

C.O.P.S. (Community Oriented Policing Seminar) was 
established by Safety Officer Robert Cronin and assisted 
by Lieutentant Arthur Ricci, Sergeants John Bernhardt, 
Barbara Connolly, James Hashem, William MacKenzie and 
Kevin Winters, Detective Kevin Burke, and Officers Lee 
Britton, John Milne and John Pathiakis. The aim of the 
program was to educate the public about Town's police 
department . 

The Public Safety Center computer was upgraded to increase the 
speed in supplying data. This had been a problem particularly for 
the Fire Department as they were not receiving emergency response 
information in a timely manner. 

The second phase of a three-phase program to equip all 
officers with portable radios was completed. This program 
increases officer safety and provides more efficient communication 
with officers on the street. 

The department was brought up to authorized strength of forty- 



33 



six sworn personnel with the transfer of three patrolmen from 
Methuen, Lawrence and North Andover. These positions were created 
by the retirement of Officers Frank Froburg and Fred Sunderland and 
Sergeant Thomas Siopes. 

• 

DETECTIVE DIVISION 

During 1993, there was little increase in the number of 
housebreaks from the previous year. The number of violent crimes 
was up in comparison to previous years. Home invasions where 
elderly residents were attacked occurred on three different 
occassions. All resulted in the arrest and conviction of the 
perpetrators. In addition, a suspect who was breaking into homes 
during the night has been identified and warrants for his arrest 
have been served. 

There were three large thefts involving computer equipment 
from various companies in Andover totalling close to $100,000 in 
1993. The thefts were internal in nature. All investigations were 
successful and the stolen property was recovered and returned. The 
First Essex Bank on North Main Street was robbed by a person using 
an alleged pipe bomb. That investigation resulted in the arrest of 
the suspect. The department currently has several sexual assault 
cases pending within the court system. 

Presently, as in the past, the department is involved in 
several mutual aid cases with surrounding communities where the 
Town's division is assisting in the identification of suspects 
involved in crimes in their communities.

ANIMAL CONTROL 

For the third straight year, Animal Control saw a decrease in 
dog complaints and loose dogs. This is attributed to vigorous 
enforcement of the leash law and compliance by the residents. The 
total number of calls handled by Animal Control increase in 1993. 
For the first time in years, rabies has worked its way back into 
Andover and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts posing a threat to 
its residents and pet population. In 1993, there were seven 
confirmed cases of rabies in Andover - six raccoons and one skunk. 
Fifteen residents and two non-residents were exposed to rabies 
which include one police officer and the Animal Control Officer. 

The Animal Control Officer attended six seminars on rabies 
sponsored by the State. He spoke to various groups on animal 
safety and rabies awareness including postal letter-carriers, 
students at the Pike School and Doherty Middle School and any 
interested residents.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT 

The Police Chief and Fire Chief attrended a three-day seminar 
on "Emergency Incident Control" addressing how to better coordinate 
emergency responses from all Town departments. Plans were 
initiated for training and exercises in Emergency Management for 
all Town departments should there be a man-made or natural 
disaster. 

The Radio Group held its weekly meetings and assisted the Town 
at many functions throughout the year. This is a very dedicated 
group of volunteers and the Town is fortunate to have their 
services. 

Forrest Noyes, Assistant Civil Defense Director and a thirty- 
five volunteer, passed away this year and will be sorely missed. 

The Auxiliary Police assisted the regular police officers many 
times throughout the year. The Police Department appreciates their 
assistance.

The goal of the Municipal Buildings Division is to continue to 
promote positive community relations with school/town departments, 
community organizations and the general public. 

PARKS AND GROUNDS DIVISION 

The three Parks and Grounds Divisions (Parks and Grounds, 
Cemetery and Forestry) are independent and interdependent. They 
all operate under the supervision of one superintendent. They 
share certain pieces of equipment and work together on special 
projects. As with any public agency with manpower, special 
equipment, and vehicles in its inventory, the three divisions 
perform many tasks seemingly unrelated to their principal 
horticultural maintenance duties such as delivering surplus 
government food to the Senior Center, litter control, trash 
removal, recycling, flagpole maintenance, fence/ gate/backstop 
repairs, drainage connections, ice control, snow removal, and 
moving extraordinarily heavy objects such as the whiskey barrels 
used as planters in the downtown area. 

Parks 

This division maintains 2.75 million square feet of ballfields 
and 1.4 million square feet of lawn areas. Ballfields are located 
on all school grounds and other areas such as Recreation Park, 
Ballardvale Playground, upper Shawsheen, lower Shawsheen, the 
Bowling Green, and the Deyermond Field. Lawn areas are the grounds 
of all Town and School buildings, parks, playgrounds, and 
designated islands, triangles, and other parcels throughout the 
Town. Ballfields are prepared (groomed and lined) for all 
secondary school athletic events. Turf maintenance consists of 
mowing, aerating, watering, overseeding, liming, fertilizing and 
controlling weeds and insects. Pesticide operations are conducted 
by trained and licensed personnel using approved pesticides and 
methods. This division also maintains small trees, shrubs and 
shrub beds on Town property and cuts back brush encroaching upon 
ballfields and recreation areas.

Cemetery 

Spring Grove Cemetery on Abbot Street is owned and operated by 
the Town of Andover. The cemetery contains approximately sixty 
acres and is approximately 75% developed. During 1993, there were 
96 burials and 120 grave sites were sold. $74,145 in fees were 
collected - $48,175 was turned over to the Town Treasurer and 
$25,970 was added to the principal of the Perpetual Care Fund. 
Cemetery operations and maintenance consist of burials, mowing, 
trimming, turf care, pruning of shrubs and small trees, leaf 
pickup, snow removal, care of its own facilities and equipment, and 
out-of -cemetery tasks such as trash in Recreation Park, drainage 
work and construction. During 1993, the cemetery crew planted 
ornamental Fringe trees and Ruby Horsechestnut trees purchased with 
funds from the estate of Sidney P. White. 

A three-year comparison of burials, sales, and monies 
collected is as follows: 

1991 1992 1993 

Burials 72 83 96 

Grave Sites Sold 109 81 120 

Total Monies Collected $57,425 $58,935 $74,145 

Forestry 

Forestry is responsible for the maintenance of trees along the 
roadside, on school property, and other Town-owned land. During 
1993, 133 dead and dying large trees were removed. The Forestry 
Division planted 30 shade trees along the roadside and planted 2 
mugo pines and 20 blue rug junipers at the Memorial Hall Library. 
Tree varieties planted were: Bradford Pear, Green Ash and 
Armstrong Maple. Approximately 25% of the personnel's time was 
spent on pruning which consists of street-by-street pruning, 
problem tree pruning, storm repairs, flatclearing areas of 
undesirable vegetation, and removing obstructions at intersections 
and curves thus providing better visibility. The Forestry Division 
also mowed tall weeds along the roadside throughout the Town. 

A three-year comparison of removals and planting is as 
follows: 

1991 1992 1993 

Trees Removed 122 107 133 

Trees Planted 37 38 30

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS 

The mission of the Department of Public Works is to 
continuously improve our quality of life by providing the finest 
potable water, state of the art disposal of our wastes (water and 
solids), and provide safe travel on our road network. 

ENGINEERING 

The Engineering Division provided field surveys, construction 
plans and documents, competitive bids, field layouts and 
construction supervision for various construction projects such as 
new sidewalks, storm drains, sewer and water mains. Staff members 
assisted and coordinated with consultants on the construction of 
such projects as the Central Street and Stevens Street bridge 
replacements and the new Bancroft Pumping Station. Assistance was 
also given to the Highway Division in the planning, estimating and 
reconstruction or resurfacing of 57 town streets. The Engineering 
Division maintained and provided records about existing utilities, 
residential and industrial sites, street layouts and excavations. 

Preliminary and Definitive Subdivision Plans were reviewed for 
the Planning Board. The construction of all new roads and 
utilities were inspected and tested to meet Town standard 
requirements. Federal and State government agencies were consulted 
on engineering matters, principally concerning Chapter 90 
construction, sewer main extensions and State Highway projects. The 
Engineering Division updated the Town Assessor's maps and printed 
the necessary copies for other Town Departments. Street opening 
permits for the installation and repair of underground utilities 
were issued through this division and the necessary inspections 
were carried out. 

The Engineering Division of Public Works consists of four 
employees. John Avery, Jr., Town Engineer for 29^ years, retired 
in June, 1993.

HIGHWAY 

During the spring and summer, two sweepers were kept busy in 
continuous cleaning of all streets after the winter sanding. The 
Highway Division assists the Engineering Division in its inspection 
of the conditions of new streets before they are accepted as public 
ways as well as providing men and equipment for all other Public 
Works divisions when needed. Catch basins and storm drains are 
kept clean and free of all debris as are Town brooks. The Highway 
Division, with the help and cooperation of all other divisions of 
the Public Works Department and the Department of Municipal 
Maintenance, is also responsible for snow removal and ice control, 
including flood control for all Town roads.

The Greater Lawrence Sanitary District Wastewater Treatment 
Facility continued to provide service to residential, commercial 
and industrial users in 1993. Since its initial operation in April 
1977, the facility has treated 189 billion gallons of wastewater 
that was previously discharged, untreated, into the Merrimack 
River. 

The plant is currently staffed by 59 people. The operation is 
continuous 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The District 
Commission meets monthly to address policy matters.

ANDOVER RECYCLING COMMITTEE 

The Andover Recycling Committee met when needed during 1993. 
The Town's curbside collection program continued for the third 
year. The addition of button and rechargeable batteries to the 
curbside program did not yield sufficient volume to continue past 
1993. Button batteries were still collected at various locations 
downtown by our members and prepared for shipping by Dana Duxbury 
and Associates to the recycling facility, Mercury Refining Company, 
Inc. (MERECO) in Albany, New York. The Town now has a contract 
with MERECO so that we may continue to ship these batteries. Hanne 
Castle organized this operation for the committee. Annual 
connectionL almost 40 pounds - more than twice the amount 
collected in 1992. Of those collected, 7 pounds were mercury 
batteries. 

Plastic (#1 and #2) , aluminum cans and materials, and metal 
cans continued to be collected on the third Saturday of each month 
at West Middle School. A monthly fee was paid to Dave White by the 
Town for this service. Carol Rougvie continued to organize our 
volunteers from the community to assist Dave's crew. There were 2- 
3 volunteers per shift. Annual tonnage collected: plastic - 27.6; 
aluminum - 12; metal cans - 25 for a total of 64.6 tons. 

Jinny Cole continued to write articles for the Andover 
Townsman . Committee members reviewed the information for the 
annual DPW calendar which is mailed to all residents but the 
committee did not assist in the preparation of the mailing as they 
have in the past. 

The committee is pleased that 1994 will bring the addition of 
metal cans to the Town's curbside collection program. Our goals 
continue to be: 1) to encourage the Town and schools to buy paper 
products made of recycled paper; and 2) to monitor, assist and 
encourage comprehensive recycling in the Town of Andover.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND PLANNING 
BUILDING DIVISION 

The mission of the Building Division is to ensure the health, 
safety and welfare of the Town's residents and visitors through the 
enforcement of the State and local laws, bylaws and regulations. 

The Building Division is charged with the enforcement of the 
State Building 780 CMR of the Acts of 1972 and Zoning Act, 
Massachusetts General Laws 40A. The Building Division issues 
permits for all types of construction including, but not limited 
to, school buildings (both public and private) , institutional 
buildings (nursing homes) , business, commercial and industrial 
buildings, dormitories, multi-family as well as single family 
dwellings, pools, chimneys, signs and additions and alterations to 
all structures. Building officials also perform periodic 
inspections for those buildings which are required to obtain 
Certificates of Inspection under State Building Code, Table 108. 

Building officials are employed to administer the building 
code and to enforce the zoning bylaws which are adopted by both 
state and local governments. The scope of these codes encompasses 
a broad range of professional and trade subject areas such as 
architecture, engineering, fire safety, law, electrical, carpentry, 
plumbing and gas. Building officials must be familiar with and 
informed to provide the public with information and guidance on all 
building and code related matters.

ELECTRICAL INSPECTION 

The purpose of the Massachusetts Electrical Code is the 
practical safeguarding of persons and property from hazards arising 
from the use of electricity. The Electrical Inspector is 
responsible for receiving and granting permits and scheduling 
inspections on a daily basis, inspecting all residential, 
commercial and industrial jobs, approving electrical plans for new 
buildings, assisting the Fire Department in inspections of fires 
due to faulty electrical devices and seeing that permits are issued 
for repairs due to fire damage. 

Enforcement of fire alarm regulations for new homes, 
conducting and certifying inspections of schools, public buildings, 
day care centers and nursing homes in conjunction with the building 
officials are part of the duties of the Electrical Inspector. 
Numerous electrical violations were investigated with the 
cooperation of Massachusetts Electric Company and corrected without 
incident.

installations is controlled by a State Uniform Plumbing and Gas 
Code formulated by the Board of State Examiners of Plumbers and Gas 
Fitters under authority of Chapter 142 of the General Laws of the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

This office completes the inspection for permitting gas, 
plumbing and sewer installations and repairs. Following the 



53 



initial inspection, additional inspections are completed during 
construction to ensure compliance with State codes. A final 
inspection is conducted for the same purpose as well as to sign off 
on a Certificate of Occupancy. Complaints and violations must also 
be investigated and corrected or reported to the proper 
authorities .

The mission of the Conservation Division is to protect 
Andover's natural resources and to act as trustees in perpetuity of 
the Town's conservation land. 

During 1993, the Conservation Commission issued approximately 
18% fewer permits under the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act 
than the preceding year. As required by law, an advertised Public 
Hearing is conducted for each permit issued. These projects 
include commercial/ industrial, residential subdivisions, single lot 
development and municipal and State projects. 

The Conservation Commission maintains the on-going delineation 
of wetland resources depicted on the 183 Andover Wetland Maps which 
are directly referenced in various Town By-Laws and regulations, 
including the Zoning By-Law, the Watershed Protection Overlay 
District, and Rules and Regulations for Use of Subsurface Sewage 
Disposal Systems. Approximately 1,600 acres of Town-owned land are 
under the control and custody of the Conservation Commission which 
prepared and periodically revises Andover's Open Space and Outdoor 
Recreation Plan. The Commission administers a number of statutory 
Conservation Restrictions and Conservation Easements over privately 
owned property. Approval of Article 61 at the 1993 Annual Town 
Meeting made $1,000,000 available for the acquisition of 
conservation land. Phillip F. Wormwood retired from the 
Conservation Commission after serving nine years. 

The Conservation staff attends interdepartmental reviews of 
major projects, interacts with the other Town land-use regulatory 
agencies, including the Zoning Board of Appeals, Planning Board, 
Board of Health, Building officials and their respective staff 
members and provides technical and administrative support to the 
seven-member volunteer Commission. 

TRAILS COMMITTEE 

Preservation of greenspace along the Shawsheen River, 
particularly the part running through the downtown area, is a 



54 



project of the Trails Committee. With support from members of the 
Conservation Commission, other Town officials, and a number of 
groups in Town, the Trails Committee is discussing public access to 
the riverfront with several key landowners. The Committee is also 
investigating how to create a multi-use path through the area that 
would serve walkers, commuters, children, and families. Such a 
path along the Shawsheen's banks would connect key features of our 
community, be located less than a guarter mile from downtown, and 
be in close proximity to most of our Town's residents. It would 
link commuter bus parking, train station, high school and middle 
school, post office, shopping centers, Penguin Park, and existing 
conservation and AVIS land. Protecting the Shawsheen River while 
extending the public's enjoyment of it improves the guality of life 
in Andover.

HEALTH DIVISION 

The mission of the Health Division is to promote and protect 
the public health including the physical, mental, emotional and 
social wellness of all people. 

The Andover Board of Health is the Town's health policy and 
decision-making board. Administrative staff includes the Director 
of Public Health, two Sanitary Code Inspectors/Health officers and 
two part-time Public Health nurses. John R. Kruse retired from the 
Board of Health after serving ten years. The following are 
highlights of the Board of Health activities in 1993: 

formed a regional consortium with the Towns of North Andover, 
Methuen and Middleton to address public health issues 
associated with smoking and tobacco use. This consortium was 
awarded a grant of $140,000 by the Mass. Dept. of Public 
Health. 

implemented a new computerized permit system for all 
construction, food service and other Board of Health permits. 

immunized a record number (over 1,300) residents against 
influenza and pneumonia with the objective of preventing what 
is predicted to be a major disease outbreak in the 1993-94 
winter season. 

conducted the first Annual Household Hazardous Waste 
Collection Day in three years. Response to this initiative 
was overwhelming as over 900 residents participated. 

initiated a new rabies education and prevention program. 
Animal rabies was declared endemic in Massachusetts raccoons 
by the State Division of Animal Health in 1993. 

received a grant from the Andover Home for the Aged to offer 
blood sugar (diabetes) screening clinic to Andover senior 
citizens.

Disease prevention, detection, containment and treatment are 
important public health nursing objectives. There have been no 
cases of human rabies reported but rabid animals were found in 



56 



Andover in 1993. In separate incidents, four rabid raccoons and 
one skunk were in direct contact with household pets and the pets 
were handled by family members. The humans exposed via their pets 
were advised to see their physicians. They were all treated with 
rabies vaccine. The exposed pets had their rabies vaccinations 
checked and were confined for a specific period. 

Public Health Nurses provided free tuberculin testing for 
Andover residents who require it for employment or are exposed to 
active tuberculosis. There is extensive follow-up of any positive 
reactor on medication or active cases of pulmonary tuberculosis. 

All reportable communicable diseases are investigated and a 
case report sent to the Communicable Disease Control Division of

PLANNING DIVISION 

The mission of the Planning Division is to ensure the orderly 
growth and development of the Town through sound planning practices 
and through the implementation of the recommendations of the Master 
Plan. 

As the statistics below reveal, 1993 mirrored the activity 
levels observed in 1992 and would indicate that the upswing in the 
economy is continuing with subdivision and development reviews and 
approvals remaining constant. In addition to increased single 
family residential development, the Planning Board approved several 
plans for new businesses in downtown Andover. Many of our larger 
industrial and commercial residents continued making major 
expansions to their facilities and added new tenants, including 
Genetics Institute, Hewlett Packard, Vicor and Brickstone Square. 

During 1993, construction began on the River Road highway 
improvement project and a grant application was submitted to the 
State for the extension of Burtt Road in Lowell Junction which will 
greatly enhance safety, traffic, flows, and development potential 
in that major industrial area. Plans were also developed for 
significant improvements at Shawsheen Square. 

The Planning Division continues to work with our neighboring 
communities on planning and economic issues and we strive to 
improve the service we provide to the citizens of Andover by 
adopting Total Quality Management practices and policies. Our 
mission is to provide the best service and guidance to the Town as 
Andover grows into the 21st century. Both John O'Brien and Mariann 
Lombardi left the Planning Board in 1993 - John because he was 
elected a State Senator and Mariann because she moved to Boston.

ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS 

The Andover Zoning Board of Appeals is authorized to function 
under the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 
Chapter 4 0A and 4 OB and the Town By-laws. The Board meets on the 
first Thursday of each month in Memorial Hall Library, Memorial 
Hall, Elm Square. Five regular members and four associate members 
are appointed by the Selectmen and serve without pay. The public 
hearings by the Board are the result of applications in the 
following areas: 

For a variance from the requirements of the By-laws. 

For a special permit under the By-laws. 

By a person aggrieved by the decision of the Building 

Inspector or other administrative officer. 

For permission to construct low or moderate income 

housing within the Town of Andover (Comprehensive 

Permit) . 

Prior to hearings, applications are reviewed and pertinent 
plans and sketches requested, legal advertisements are published 
and abutters are notified as required by law. The public hearings 
are conducted by the Chairman in conformity with the Board of 
Appeals Rules and Regulations. Following the hearings, the members 
of the Board, when deemed necessary, view each property in question 
and hold a deliberation meeting thereafter, open to the public, at 
which time the Board discusses the petitions which have been heard. 
Based on their views and the evidence presented at the hearing, a 
decision is rendered, signed and filed with the Town Clerk. 

Jane E. Griswold retired from the Zoning Board on June 30, 
1993. Ms. Griswold had been an active member of the Board for 
eighteen years and served as Clerk for twelve of those years. C. 
Ryan Buckley also retired from the Board on June 30, 1993. Mr. 
Buckley had been an active member since 1987 and had served as 
Chairman since 1990.

COUNCIL ON AGING 

The mission of the Council on Aging is to ensure 
comprehensive, quality programs and services through outreach, 
education, advocacy and social activities for the senior population 
of the Town of Andover. 

The year 1993 experienced a change of administration and other 
personnel. In March, 1993, Sharon L. Souza was appointed 
Coordinator of Senior Services, replacing Mary Byrne Potvin, who 
resigned in December, 1992. Niki Riedell was appointed Outreach 
Service Coordinator in August, 1993, replacing Elizabeth Leed, who 
resigned in October, 1992. 

Since her appointment, Ms. Souza has made significant changes 
in the Senior Center, which in large part are responsible for the 
1993 increases. Exceptions to this were Adult Day Care and Meals- 
on-Wheels, which suffered sharp declines in 1993. This condition 
was due in large part to further State cuts and a poor economy. 
During the coming year, coordinated efforts will be made to correct 
this problem through strong marketing strategies and vast 
improvement in public awareness. 

With further changes on the planning board to increase 
involvement by seniors and to revise programs and services, 1994 
should bring major improvement in every area, resulting in a more 
user friendly environment in the Senior Center.

ANDOVER HISTORICAL COMMISSION 



Preservation of mill buildings on the Shawsheen River in the 
Andover Village Historic District was a major concern in 1993. 
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the mills are 
the centerpiece of the entire district. In September 1993, a 
demolition permit proposal was received to raze a three-story mill 
building, smoke stack and boiler on the west side of the river to 
facilitate the renovation of the remaining structures for assisted 
care living. With the involvement of the Building Inspector, the 
Fire Department and the Planning Department, the Commission ruled 
the structures should be "preferably preserved" pending further 
analysis. On the east side of the Shawsheen, a demolition proposal 
to raze the so-called DASA building was approved with the 
understanding that the owner, Burt Paley, will make space available 
on the west side for the only tenant in that building - the 
Suburban Health Clinic. 

The preservation of the Redman Card Clothing Company's mill 
buildings on Red Spring Road is also of great concern. The Redman 
family wishes to expand operations and is considering relocation. 
In this regard, the Commission is working with the Redman family, 
the Planning Division, Essex County Planner Tom O'Leary, the Town 
Manager and the Conservation Commission to come up with a 
financially viable plan. The object of such a plan would be to 
improve public access to a beautiful stretch of the Shawsheen River 
and preserve the historic 1812 mill building. Karen Herman is 
actively involved in this project. 

Another major concern was the preservation of Draper Hall on 
the Phillips Academy campus. In May 1993, the Commission approved 
permits to demolish Abby Hall, "the Shop" and Building 108 in order 
to facilitate the conversion of Draper Hall to apartments. These 
permits expired by the year end because funding for the apartment 
project failed. At year end, the Phillips Academy Trustees voted 
to raze all but the front end of Draper Hall and to restore the 
portion of Draper Hall facing School Street and the historic Abbot 
Hall. While the Commission is disheartened by the Academy's 
decision not to preserve the historic south wing of Draper Hall, it 
applauds the decision to fund the restoration of Abbot Hall and all 
of the buildings facing School Street making up the historic Abbot 
Academy circle. 

During 1993, the Commission processed several demolition 
requests including two separate sites on Center Street, Ballardvale 
and one each on Cuba Street and 174 Lowell Street. The petition to 
demolish a Central Street residence to make room for a parking lot 
for Andover Bank employees was approved on the grounds that the 
structure was not "historically significant" although Commission 
members are concerned that it results in further erosion of the 
historic residential area on Central Street. 



63 



The Commission continues to monitor the Ballardvale Historic 
District Study Committee which just completed a comprehensive list 
of buildings it plans to include in the proposed district. They 
have held public meetings and made promotions in support of the 
district. While a plan was not completed in time for the 1994 Town 
Meeting, an active committee, under the able chairmanship of 
Timothy Barash, believes that a viable plan can go to Town Meeting 
no later than April 1995. 

The Commission completed the assigned mission to take the 
necessary preliminary steps for Andover 's 350th celebration in 
1996. After hearings, it identified community groups anxious to 
take key roles in the program and initiated a budget request, 
approved at the 1993 Annual Town Meeting, for $20,000 seed money. 
Four Commission members serve on the 350th Committee including 
Norma Gammon, its able and experienced chairperson. 

Commission members, particularly our Secretary Karen Herman, 
played an active role in the Town's Shawsheen Square Redevelopment 
Project. The Commission made several written recommendations to 
the Board of Selectmen most of which were designed to preserve the 
historic features of land and buildings adjacent to the square and 
the use of signs to enhance the Village's status as an important 
Village District in the National Register of Historic Places. The 
Commission received a report from Ray and Melissa Flynn indicating 
strong local support for a Chapter 40C Historic District. 

In December 1993, the Commission was successful in receiving 
approval to place the former United States Post Office Building in 
the National and State Registers of Historic Places along with an 
Historic Restrictive Covenant to be administered by the 
Massachusetts Historical Commission. We have cooperated with the 
latter on specific proposals, the last of which involves First 
Essex Bank. 

The Commission continues to work with the Andover Historical 
Society in joint programs in the area of annual preservation awards 
and house markers. Public support for the marker program improved 
significantly in 1993. 

Ellen Zipeto's membership in the Design Advisory Group served 
to keep us informed on pertinent development in that area. John 
Dugger is serving as liaison on the Ballardvale Historic District 
Study Committee. Steve Kearn, in addition to being a member on the 
350th Committee, has been on the Preservation Award Committee for 
two years. Francis Byrne attends our meetings regularly with 
significant input on several key issues.

VISION STATEMENT 

The Town of Andover, more than a place to live, is a way of life. Its 
legacy of democracy shall be preserved. Each citizen should 
experience the treasures of nature, history, individual respect, neighborhood, 
and learning. As resources and energy allow, each of these gifts from the 
past will be enriched in the present for those yet to be.
